    today, rather than posting some unrelated and old stories, I am going to post something that is real.
    below is the chart I got from Perfect daily grind article that I just read.

    It is a very urgent and interesting article even though some are not correct.
    if you have time, please take a look at the link.
    I also put my comments on the bottom of this page.

    if you know, if you have some idea how we can protect the 3rd world coffee industries and the workers, please post your comments here.
    thanks

    PS: as far as Guatemala is concerned, this minimum wage chart for coffee workers are absolutely not true. I put the reasons in the comment section of the link.

    Most of Guatemalans "in Guatemala" pours a copies amount of sugar in their coffee, not because they do not know what is good coffee, but because the coffee they are drinking and being served inferior coffees than what we are used to in U.S.A. or any other developed countries. They have to cover up the bitter taste of the cheap coffee with sugar.

    Most of cafes in Guatemala and probably in most of other countries, they only use defective / rejected coffee beans (called, rechazos in Spanish) or mixed between defective & good beans to lower the cost because the coffees must be cheap enough so th
    at most of people can only afford to buy them. (I guess that would be about 90% plus people in Guatemala). When a normal coffee worker makes $8 to $10 per day, he isn't going to spend $3.50 for a latte which is how much it cost in "Barista", "&Cafe" or any other Specialty coffee shops in Guatemala.

    So, it call comes down to economic situation of most Guatemalans. When their living standards improve drastically, be able to make more money to support family and have some money left over for better coffee, I am sure that they will not pour so much coffee into their coffee because they will be able to buy "better coffee" from better cafes.

    they are Yellow Bourbon, Red Caturra and Mokka from Santa Felisa farm in Acatenango where Mr.Peaberry and I will be going on March 12.
    When I was there last year, I got some samples and took some photos.

    By the way, the Mokka is extremely small size and they are not commercial, can not be sold. (can you imagine trying to roast that mokka? that would be really really tough...)

    My suggestion as i found in my coffee is as follows
    1. The Coffee Plant Originated in Ethiopia
    2. Coffee is the Seed of a Cherry
    3. Strong Coffee is Created During Brewing Not Roasting

    Accidentally to research I found, the birthplace of the steel pan, Trinidad and Tobago produces coffee. However, not a lot of coffee is grown there and most people don't consume coffee. I would love to go to Trinidad to play the steel pan with a group in one of the pan yards.

    then, after we do the dry milling, we get to have the "Cascaras". Dried up Coffee cherry without the seeds.
    We do not sell them, but we give away to some coffee shops we work with and consume in our company as you can see in below photos, making tea.

    Do you roast the coffee also? I'd like to buy from you.

    if you know of some very interesting coffee facts (un-common), please post them here.

    Hawaii is the only state in the U.S. that commercially grows coffee.
